The spores of the Blastcap can survive in outer space, and have propagated throughout the galaxy by means of traveling on interstellar solar winds. When approached, they will make a rustling noise and shake violently. Upon contact with Samus, or when sufficiently damaged, they will explode. The explosion will damage Samus as well as release a cloud of gas as the mushroom itself is consumed.This can also often set off other nearby Blastcaps in a chain reaction effect. Contrary to its scan data, the gas is not harmful to Samus.
 
   
A more brightly-coloured breed of Blastcaps are also encountered in ''[[Metroid Prime Hunters]]'' on both [[Alinos]] and [[Arcterra]]. The gas emitted by this variant when destroyed can harm Samus, and will fill a small area for a short time around where the Blastcap was. The type that appears on Arcterra seems to be a white arctic species, though they appear to be merely scenery in the [[Frost Labyrinth]] and cannot be scanned. If a hacking device is used, the Arcterra variant shares the same scan, and emits the same gas if destroyed. The only difference is that another Blastcap will grow back after the gas clears up.

The Blastcap is a mushroom-like fungus which is native to the planet Tallon IV.

DescriptionEdit

Blastcaps can be found in the Tallon Overworld and Chozo Ruins areas. They resemble large, capped mushrooms of varying size, with twisted stalks and green tendrils underneath their porous caps.

Blastcaps can grow alone, but tend to grow in small clusters. When approached, they will make a rustling noise and shake violently. Upon contact, or when sufficiently damaged, they will violently explode, destroying itself and anything in the immediate vicinity and releasing a cloud of noxious gas.

The spores of the Blastcap can survive in outer space, and have propagated throughout the galaxy by means of traveling on interstellar solar winds. This has resulted in the species traveling as far as the Alimbic Cluster, where it has colonized Alinos and Arcterra. The Blastcaps found on Arcterra are simpler in structure, lacking the tendrils of their Tallonian counterparts and having a red spot in the center of their caps. However, the lingering cloud left by these Blastcaps is more dangerous, and capable of even harming armored individuals.

In Metroid Prime, Blastcaps can be found in these rooms: Tallon Canyon, Watery Hall, Waterfall Cavern, Meditation Fountain, Ruined Gallery, Gathering Hall, Watery Hall Access and Transport Tunnel C. In Hunters, Blastcaps are located in High Ground, Alimbic Gardens, Crash Site and Frost Labyrinth.
